Morning light, La Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain.
Holy, Holy, Holy God, we rise in happiness to worship you this day.
Let us be glad in the wonders of all your blessings, and give thanks for the might of your arm. Defend us, Lord God, from all perils and dangers: keep us as the apple of your eye. Draw us close to your side: hide us under the shadow of your wing; for You are our God, and we worship You in beauty. We turn to You in our work and in our rest, Lord Christ, for You are our guide and our stay, the keeper of our souls.
May we place the spark of your love to the kindling of our hearts, and be set aflame to serve and worship only You, O God. Spread your blessing over us like the canopy of forest, O Holy One: let us walk with You on cool, wide paths of goodness and mercy. Place your hand of blessing upon those we now name, Almighty God. Amen. 858
